Description of problem:
Please explicit Requires libvisual-plugins in amarok-visualisation subpackage
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install amarok-visualisation
Actual Results: notice that libvisual plugins are not available from visualisation menu
Expected Results: It is should (imho) pull in the plugins
Amarok without libvisual-plugins can use visualisation plugins from xmms. Xmms
is automatically installed by amarok-visualisation because of the dependency on
libxmms.so.1, so amarok-visualisation ships with plugins out-of-the-box.
I tend to think that plugins should never be Require'd in spec file if we want
them to remain what they are -- plugins, that can be added or not.
What do you think ?
Granted, they are plugins - but if a user installs the amarok-visualisation
package, then visualizers is what the user is after.
It's up to you, I consider it an RFE and not a functionality bug - since it is
not difficult for the user to figure out what they need.
"Suggest" (aka Requires(hint)) is in RPM CVS, I've added a comment into
amarok-visualisation with "Requires(hint): libvisual-plugins". I'll enable it
when it's available in FC.
